The Worshipful Company of Brewers, Part VI: “Hot/Hotter” by Andrew Ety

DSC_0223

Ladies, gentlemen and ale lovers hark! The Worshipful Company of Brewers is upon us. The charter of this sanctified league dictates that each member of the Brooklyn Brewery brewing team will design and create a batch of his/her own draft-only beer, to be served exclusively at the Brewery Tasting Room until the last drop has been squeezed from the taps, and each with the possibility of blooming into a fully distributed Brewmaster’s Reserve.

BEER #6: Hot/Hotter
Style: Pale Ale
ABV: 6.2%
Notes: A hop drying comparison done for the Hop Quality Group, Hot/Hotter is two variations on the same Pale Ale. Hot is dry-hopped with Citra hops kilned at 130°F, and has a rounded, full aroma and the bitterness is smooth. Hotter is dry-hopped with Citra hops kilned at 150°F, and has a sharper hop aroma and a slightly more aggressive bitterness.
Available: Fri, April 19 until it’s gone!

BREWER #6: Andrew Ety (Assistant Brewmaster)
Started at Brooklyn Brewery: 2000
